If you’re a New Yorker you know how precious space is. So we probably don’t have to do much to convince you that this three-bedroom townhouse at 115 East 37th Street in Murray Hill is worth a look. But beyond its parquet floors, oversized windows, fireplaces, and prewar detail, this place has even more to offer, like some of the most intriguing design elements we’ve come across. And it’s on the market for $15,000 a month.
Let’s start with the glamorous living room. This space has high ceilings, a wet bar, and elaborate moldings. These intricate designs extend past the standard crown molding and run all along the beamed ceiling. The window frame boasts some ornate designs as well. The rest of this level is mainly living space with two bedrooms, one of which has a bold cherry wood, black, and gold ceiling.
From here you can either take the boring way down the straight staircase or you can make a grand entrance to the lower level by walking down the curved staircase, which is sure to amuse with illustrations of people (or creatures) journeying with you.
The basement has a beautiful open kitchen with stone countertops, fresh white cabinets, and stainless steel appliances. Across from the kitchen is a trendy dining room with a fireplace, an intriguing accent wall, and the coolest lamps we’ve ever seen. Also make sure to check out the wire sculpture on the right. From this dining room you can step out into a private rear garden.
This lower level has a large bedroom, presumably the master, with tons of closet space, built-ins, and an en suite bathroom featuring a curved wall, thanks to the staircase. There’s also a living room off the kitchen with a private bathroom, so it could probably double as a fourth bedroom.
Murray Hill is the perfect location for young professionals, with lots of mom-and-pop shops and restaurants and a short distance from shopping destinations.
